Climbing French Bean Borlotta Lingua di Fuoco 2

Description

Climbing French Bean seeds - Barlotta Lingua di Fuoco 2.

Luckily, this variety is easier to grow than pronounce. It is one of the most attractive beans with bright green flat pods splashed with red which disappear on cooking. It can be used as a flageolet type. Climbing beans such as this variety should be supported in the same way as you would support runner beans.

This family of beans is frost tender and cannot be sown until the weather has warmed up.

WHEN TO SOW

April to June

Where to Sow

Early sowings can be made underglass at a temperature of 16°C, sow 3 seeds per 8cm (3in) pot filled with seed sowing compost. Outside sowings can be made from May onwards into the growing site 5cm (2in) deep. Sow 2-3 seeds every 20cm(8in) apart with rows spaced 60cm (24in) apart.

What to do next

Seedlings sown underglass should be gradually hardened off before planting outside in late May to the above spacing, once all risk of frost has past. Provide support by canes or netting for plants to climb. Water regularly during dry weather.

MATURITY

July to September

HANDY TIP

The beans can be harvested like a flageolet type and cooked or be left to ripen and stored as an attractive winter dry bean.

NUTRITIONAL VALUE
